Jack Jerome (Will Cooper / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Will Cooper is Jack Jerome in this spoof motivational seminar of a show; he is likeable from the beginning – positive, chirpy and smiley – and promises we’ll leave the room as happier and more motivated people. The set is amusing at the start, because of his naivety towards his school bullying, and why his ex-girlfriend left him. However, as we are introduced to more characters, such as his “Aussie” brother, Jarred, the funny factor decreases and the laughs become fewer. Ultimately, some of the jokes and skits are simply not funny, but a smiling persona and charismatic personality make for an entertaining and enjoyable show.

Ciao Roma, until 24 Aug, 4.35pm.
